After reading most of the comments that's when I got this idea to write a post about my shopping online experience.
When I was going through those comments I seen a lot of good comments and a lot of negative ones too.
While I can't speak on everyone else's shopping experience I can speak on mine.
I have ordered over $40 of stuff so far in the past 2 weeks. I have already had a few of my things come in already and I will be sharing photos of those items below.
Wish is an online shopping site and app with a little bit of everything on it for cheap. I read comments about how their stuff is cheap and crap. Well, one you can't order something for a $1 or two and expect to get something that is value of something you would normally pay $20 for. Their stuff is cheap for a reason, because it is cheaply made in China.
I ordered this beautiful necklace right here for a $1 on Wish. It's cute, but it dose feel cheap, but don't look cheap. I love this necklace and it was worth the $1 I paid for it.
I paid $2 for this beautiful anchor necklace. It's long, it don't feel or look cheap to me. I like it a lot and for $2 that's a bargain. It's gold with white diamonds. It's also made to look like your wearing two necklaces, but it's made into one.
Blue fox head jack dust plug for phones and tablets, I want to say I paid a $1 for this cute little fuzzy guy. I really thought it was bigger than what the picture had shown, but its still cute and I love this blue color. There is one blue diamond that is a bit out of place, but what I paid for it I'm not going to cry over it.
Pink tote bag. This bag also looked a lot bigger online than it dose in person, but it does hold a lot of junk and nice to have for those big tote bags that I carry to the beach. I can put all my small items in this little bag and won't have to hunt for my smaller items in a big tote bag. I paid $3 for this one and I will say $3 for this was a bit much as it does feel cheap, but it will come in handy.
I paid $2 for this watch. It's gold and black. It's a watch that also wraps around your wrist to look like your wearing bracelets with it. It fits well, works well and its very fashionable.
LED Cell Phone Selfie Light. I paid $2 for this gadget. You can order them on Amazon for $8-$11 if you would like to spend way more for the same product. This LED light has 3 settings Low, Med, & High. When I watched a video on this product by other buyers I could tell a big difference, but on mine it don't seem to work when I change the settings, so I maybe ordering me a new one. I bought this for my iPad mini, because the iPad mini I have don't have a flash and I thought this would be great to have for night time snap chatting.
Here are some other items that I have ordered from Wish that has came in, in the past week since the blog post has been posted.
Gold deer necklace. I paid a $1 for it. It came in right on time.
Love bracelet paid a $1.
12 pack dimand small noise studs. Paid a $1.
8x zoom telescope mobile lens. I paid $4 and will doing a blog post on this item later.
Camera keychain. Paid a $1 and has a LED flash and camera sound. I love it, its so cute and will be ordering more in other colors.
Pink Camera Necklace. Paid $1 and also comes in other colors. Came early and even came with a cute Chinese token & thank you card.
I paid $3 for this bag, The purple just popped and made me want it lol. I really thought it would have been a bit bigger, but its ok. You get what you pay for. I already knew the straps would be really long, so I'm going to take it up and use it for a makeup bag or a small beach bag to put my phone and etc. in when we go to the beach.
As far as my first time ordering so much from Wish these items I have shared with you have came in and some even earlier than my expected delivery date
I have ordered a swim suite in the past and it came a week late. I did contact Wish and they was kind and offered me my money back or gave me the option to wait a bit longer. So I waited and it came in a few days later. I wasn't happy with the swimsuit so I did end up selling it to get my money back. The material was cheap, barely fit and showed way to much skin VS what the picture had shown.
As far as clothes go on Wish. I wouldn't recommend anyone to order clothes on there unless you are a size 0-2 because their clothes in China are way smaller than USA clothes. If you are a smaller size woman then you could go ahead and try, but I would still order 2 or 3 sizes bigger than what you are. For plus size woman I would stay clear off Wish to buy clothes and this is coming from a plus size woman. Their plus size clothes are made for skinny woman.
UPDATE: Here are a few more things I have ordered from Wish.
iPhone 5s gel cases. I paid a $1 for each case. They are cheaply made and the gel case designs. They are cute and I love the designs on the back of these cases.
Lollipop Foundation Brush. I paid a $1 for this. It is smaller than what it looks on Wish, but I love this little guy.
Retro Vintage Camera Neckalace. I paid a $1 for this cute black vintage camera neckalace. I like it a lot and it even looks good with some of my sweaters. The necklace is long and the pendit is bigger than the image shows on Wish. The necklace is hollow inside, but does have a cute gold back on it.
